Over 50 years ago Joel and Renee Meisner founded Joel Meisner & Company, a bronze casting foundry. Soon thereafter Renee opened The Meisner Gallery, a way to showcase artists who cast at the foundry. Their son Mitchell followed in the family's footsteps by joining the business. He too had an interest in casting but his vision led him towards what was then a material in its infancy, acrylic casting. Mitchell began experimenting with acrylic and other plastic polymers such as resins and urethanes. What he discovered, was an untapped medium with unlimited potential. Acrylic's optically pure property offered artists a new way to tell stories with their work, by incorporating another dimension known as refractions.
Designers and decorators took to the medium as well. They could create unique focal points for projects and add yet another visual and textural element. Acrylic can be colored, clear, frosted, texturized, and used to embed other objects and materials.
Mitchell along with his wife Hillary proudly continue the family tradition. They work with not only artists but visual merchandisers, decorators, architectural design firms, furniture designers, jewelry designers, window display artists and more. At Meisner Art Casting their motto is from concept to creation. All projects, no matter the size are treated with the same attention to detail and collaborative project planning.
